Rezidor to open a new Park Inn in Nürnberg
The Rezidor Hotel Group has signed a leasing contract for a new Park Inn hotel in Nürnberg, Germany. Formerly known as the Concorde Hotel Viva and centrally located downtown at the border of the historic Old Town, the property will be closed for three months for a complete renovation to the Park Inn standards. The brand is promising a young and fresh image, an easy-going atmosphere and very simply “the best sleep in town”. The re-opening of the 152-room hotel is scheduled for autumn 2007.
“Park Inn is our fastest growing brand, and Germany an important and consolidated home market where we intend to development Park Inn during the coming years”, underlines Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of The Rezidor Hotel Group. “All over Europe, we are realizing a growing demand for attractive mid market hotels, strategically located in secondary and tertiary cities – providing international standards and national marketing.”
The Park Inn portfolio in Germany currently comprises 12 hotels – amongst them the flagship Park Inn Berlin-Alexanderplatz with 1006 rooms. Nürnberg is the second largest city of Bavaria, one of the fastest growing trade fair locations in Europe and an important conference and congress venue.
